Academic Responsibility

Students are expected to abide by the principles clearly explained in the Student Handbook and to act in accordance with Bucknell University's Honor Code presented below. Under no circumstance, any student should submit work that is not of his or her authorship. If a deadline is tight or impossible, don’t get desperate, instead, talk to your instructor.

Your instructor will explain in detail the collaboration policy for each specific assignment. Before you start your work, make sure to read and understand this policy. Should any questions arise, contact your instructor immediately to have them clarified.

Bucknell University Honor Code

As a student and citizen of the Bucknell University community:

  1. 1. I will not lie, cheat, or steal in my academic endeavors.

  2. 2. I will forthrightly oppose each and every instance of academic dishonesty.

  3. 3. I will let my conscience guide my decision to communicate directly with any person or persons I believe to have been dishonest in academic work.

  4. 4. I will let my conscience guide my decision on reporting breaches of academic integrity to the appropriate faculty or deans.
